Beta event scheduled for January 18
Trion Worlds has a lot to prove with Defiance, its massively multiplayer online shooter which also happens to be an upcoming television show on SyFy. The studio will be running a brief "Advanced Mission Beta 1" this month, giving many players their first real opportunity to play the game.
If you're potentially interested and have the necessary free time to play between 8:00am Pacific on January 18 and 9:00pm Pacific on January 20, sign up for this initial beta event over here. During this period, Trion will provide access to a competitive multiplayer map, Defiance's open-world Shadow War PvP, and cooperative boss battles.
